Higher Education Night Takes Place on Oct. 1
St. Lawrence University will host the Northern Zone Counselors Association’s Higher Education Night from 6:30 to 8 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 1, in Leithead Field House. The event is free and open to the public.
The event is an opportunity for high school students and their families to meet representatives from participating colleges and to gather information. Financial aid representatives also will be available, providing details on the application process and the various types of financial aid available. Students from high schools throughout Northern New York and Canada are expected to attend.
Higher Education Night will also offer an “Ask Admissions Experts” panel discussion featuring representatives from St. Lawrence, Clarkson University, Syracuse University and Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) immediately preceding the event. The discussion will begin promptly at 5:45 p.m. in Augsbury Physical Education Center. The selective college panel, which is intended for students in grades 9 though 11 and their parents as well as guidance counselors, will focus on what students can do in high school to enhance their applications for admission to selective colleges.
